The seaside resort town of Cap d’Agde (south of France), which hosts 250,000 tourists a day during the summer season, is facing the increasing scarcity of water. SUEZ is using its expertise as a world leader in wastewater recycling to serve the city of Agde, watering the Cap d’Agde golf course with treated wastewater (REUSE). This innovative solution, one of the top examples of REUSE in France, will help to save 200,000 m3 of drinking water during the summer.
With little rain, diminishing levels of groundwater in aquifers, and water restriction measures put in place, the 2019 summer season was marked by an exceptional drought that demonstrated the need to have a powerful and predictive water management system for the country and its inhabitants.
